SCHOOL NEWS:  Salad Bar, Start with Hello Week, Publix, Speech and Hearing, Movie Screening, Family Honor, Yearbooks and Box Tops  
1.      Salad Bar - The Salad Bar is Here! The Salad Bar is Here! Beginning Monday, Sept. 24 and then every Mon., Wed., and Friday, students will be able to purchase the Salad Bar option at lunch. We will open it up to the middle school students first to see how it works, and then add grades to be able to participate. Be sure and check the fanfare weekly for the updates on this. A big thank you to Mrs. Curtiss for providing us this healthy opportunity!
2.      Start With Hello Week - This September 24-28, your child will be taking part in Start With Hello Week at OLPH School. Start with Hello teaches students, grades 2-12, the skills they need to reach out to and include those who may be dealing with chronic social isolation and create a culture of inclusion and connectedness within their classroom, school or youth organization. Social isolation is the overwhelming feeling of being left out, lonely, or treated like you are invisible. It is a growing epidemic in the United States and within our schools. Excessive feelings of isolation can be associated with violent and suicidal behavior. In fact, one study reports that chronic loneliness increases the risk of an early death by 14%. Furthermore, young people who are isolated can become victims of bullying, violence and/or depression. As a result, many further pull away from society, struggle with learning and social development and/or choose to hurt themselves or others. We encourage you to talk to your child about the Start With Hello program and ask them to share what they have learned. Not only will that help you learn how to support your child to identify isolation, reach out and connect, and Start With Hello, it also demonstrates to your child that you take this subject seriously and can support them in their actions to create a more connected and inclusive home, classroom, school and community. Finally, we encourage you to support your child in sharing their Start With Hello story by submitting their creative expressions to the Start With Hello Student Voices Contest at https://www.sandyhookpromise.org/studentcontest. For more information on Start With Hello and to sign up to receive the Start With Hello Parent Brochure, please visit: http://www.sandyhookpromise.org/bringstartwithhello.
Activities through the week include the following:
Monday- A powerpoint presentation for grades 2-8 on Start With Hello Week
Tuesday- Lifesaver Day. Lifesaver day is when students go around and give other students lifesaver candies, provided by Beta Club, to represent that one small act of kindness can save a life.
Wednesday- Wear Green Day (Sandy Hook Promise’s colors) to further promote awareness and call attention to Sandy Hook Promise’s Start With Hello Week. Students may wear a green shirt with their uniform bottoms.
Thursday-Throughout the day, Beta officers will go around to classrooms talking to students about Start with Hello Week and why this is so important.
